Hi girls

Well I ended up at DS's today. He called and needed DH to help him, so I quickly got some of my scrap book stuff together and took it with me. My DGD that lives here was at DS's this week. Her and my DGD in California are about the same age and enjoyed being with each other last summer at camping. So they were happy to see each other on skype. They both are good artist and draw so that is what they do while we scrap. It was a fun time doing all of this with my DGD here.

Vicki - My husband and I live in the White Mountains of Arizona. We live at 5800 altitude. It is considered high desert where I live. We do get snow in winter, monsoons around second week of July, and fall follows.
DH and I been married 49 years. We both got married at 19. I have 3 children, 9 grandchildren. One DGD married and expecting my first great grandchild.
I love to scrapbook, sew, crochet rugs and knit dish cloths. I like to cook, and try new recipes especially JoAnna Lund's. Right now I live in my DIL's home out in the country where she use to have an Organic Farm. She married my son 3 years ago. I have a few chickens. That is all I can think of this late at night. Just a little tired. I am 69 years old. I have been a stay at home wife and mom most of my married life. Love it!

Jan – Love the picture. We all have those bad weeks so we just get back up and keep on moving toward healthy eating for our health and loose a little in the process, I am still working on that last 5-7 lbs. Like the Doctors want.

Patty – you are right it has only JUST BEGUN!

Glenna – I am with Patty you are sure one busy lady.

We really cover a lot of area now including Florida.

Patty, You are a trooper with walking even when your knee hurts. It sounds like you've had enough sitting.

I did some grocery shopping after TOPS and then lunch with some friends. Small town restaurant that's nice but slow. Plus lots of visiting.

Glenna, you are sure one busy lady.

Vicki, never been to Flint.

I just came in from a 1/2 mile slow walk. I am going out again after supper to get the second 1/2 mile in. Going to try to walk 1 mile at least 4 days a week. See what happens.

I decided that since just sitting in my chair doesn't make my knee feel any better, that I may as well walk a bit.
It may also loosen it up a bit, may be be better for surgery.

Bob and I lived in Otisville, just outside of the Flint area.

If the plan doesn't work, change the plan, not the goal.
My goal is to be healthier, period !

Hi Everyone. I live with hubby Bob in Titusville, Florida. Bob is originally from Michigan and I'm from So. Carolina. We moved to Florida in 1999 and I'm quite happy here. Bob misses Michigan but can no longer deal with the Winters there.
I've been a stay at home wife since our marriage in 1996. Bob had just retired from General Motors after 30 years and he didn't want me working.
Bob has a severe heart condition and I almost lost him in 2009 and again in 2015. He's having out patient surgery in the morning to replace the battery for his pacer/defib combo. His current battery lasted 6 years. Hope the one he gets tomorrow will last longer.
I'm 62 and Bob is 75. I have a grown son, Chris (43) that lives in No. Carolina. Due to allergies we can't have pets.
I'm a huge reader and always have a book going. Currently I'm hooked on Lori Foster books.
I'm also a pen paller and have about 30 women I write to regularly. Been pen palling since I was 14.
This tells you a little about me.

If the plan doesn't work, change the plan, not the goal.
My goal is to be healthier, period !

Good morning Jan and Girls,

Jan, I'm sorry about the gain. You know what to do, just get back on track as soon as possible. I'm talking to myself as well as you...lol

Hubby has a chiro appt this afternoon.

Good idea Jan, to tell Vicki a bit about ourselves.

We live in Michigan, in the pinkie of the state. Hubby and I are both retired.

I knit, crochet and loom knit for charity mostly, and a bit for myself.
It is also good therapy.

we have a kitty.

We have 5 kids between us, I have 2, hubby has 3.
We just celebrated 39 years of marriage.

Can't think of what else to say right now.

Good morning girls,

I hope everyone got some good sleep last night.

What's going on where you are today? I'm going to TOPS and I know I have a gain.

Maybe we could tell Vicki a little about ourselves.

I'm Jan and I live in Oregon on the north coast with my husband. We have two sons, no grandchildren. I think I've been dieting a huge amount of my life. I aim to eat in all the food groups but I do get an inner rebellion about veggies. We are in our own home now but have applied for a senior apartment and are waiting to hear when our number comes up. So I'm in the process of downsizing.

Jan
